Ryca Kit Bike

     I saw this bike in a parking lot the other day. I thought it was a sweet little chop.

     Later I got to thinking that I had seen a "kit chopper" that was similar, then I remembered the Ryca kits.  Ryca builds several kits, bobber, cafe racer, scrambler and street trackers, using the Suzuki (S40) Savage and Harley Sportster as the basic bike.
     It looks well engineered and it's a sweet looking little bike. I really like the way the Suzuki engine looks without the big chrome band at the top. The only down side is that because it's a kit they tend to all look the same, like a production bike. Over time the owner would probably change enough to make the bike different from the rest.
